Proactive vs. Reactive Tuning Explained
October 25, 2004

Oracle Database Performance Management White Paper

"Oracle Database Performance Management", Gaja Krishna Vaidyanatha : "Oracle Performance management can be classified into 2 types - proactive and reactive. Proactive performance management involves designing and developing the performance architecture for a system, during the early stages of an implementation. This involves hardware selection, performance & capacity planning, mass storage system selection, I-O sub-system configuration & tuning (i.e. RAID), and tailoring the various components to suite the complex needs of the application and the Oracle database. The reactive component involves performance evaluation, troubleshooting, tuning and fine-tuning an Oracle environment, within the boundaries of the existing hardware and performance architecture. This paper is intended to provide a solid knowledge base for any “reactive” effort."

An interesting paper actually, as it covers the performance tuning methodology from an instance tuning perspective.

You can also use Ion for Oracle for proactive Oracle tuning, a tool built especially for the proactive approach.
